Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake

Available Today

The Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM is an ultra-slim and lightweight pancake lens for Canon EF / EF-S mount cameras. Despite its incredibly compact size, the 40mm f/2.8 delivers high image quality with good corner-to-corner sharpness and accurate color rendition. It features a stepping motor for silent continuous focus for both still and video shooting. At only 0.9" in length and 0.29 lbs, it’s Canon’s ultimate take-everywhere lens.

Please Note: This lens has an electronically-activated manual focus. It will not work on an adapter that doesn’t offer electronic communication with the lens. Basically, if you’re shooting using a mount adapter, you don’t want this lens.

This is really an amazing lens. Little pancakes are cute and all, but usually aren’t of very good image quality. This one has exceptional image quality and does it at an amazing price. Probably the best bargain of a prime lens that exists, anywhere, for anything.
